Overwatering can cause the leaves of a cyclamen to yellow, but cyclamen plants usually go dormant after they've finished blooming so the roots can rest. If the flowers have faded, I suspect it will lose all its leaves so it can rest. If your plant is still producing flowers, overwatering is the probable cause for the yellowing leaves. Hope this information helps you determine just what might be going on with your plant.
